no we're not oc housewives we're beach girls

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.

1 Peter 2:24
 
since today is Good Friday, Easter Weekend & I am Catholic..even went to catholic school when I was younger, I am taking the day off of blogging & observing the holiday. the post below is a guest post i did a week or so ago so i thought i would just re-post it here. also i finally reached 200 followers so i get to have my 2nd giveaway! come back tomorrow to enter my giveaway!!
I live in Southern California, The OC to be exact....i know there are so many different perceptions of what The OC is like....but im here to show you how we, beach girls dress for summer in the OC....sooo lets take a look at my MUST HAVES for the perfect OC summer......
welcome to the beach! this is where we spend must of our time during the summer

we live in our bathing suits during the summer & this years hot item is the FRINGE top...the most popular one is by L*Spaced & you're lucky because you can buy them online - they're pretty true to size & SUPER comfortable. The bandeau ones tie in the back, that's the one I have, in Black...i got black because then i can  mix & match it with different color bottoms - another big thing in The OC, its very rare to see a girl with a matching top & bottom

PONCHOS are another must have for an OC summer - light weight ones..they're perfect to throw over your suit for a walk on the beach or a bonfire at night


the MAXI dress....now i know this is a trend that a lot of people do not like to try, but i highly suggest everyone owning a maxi dress...you just have to find the right one for your body...I'm 5'3 so i never thought maxi dresses would look good on me, but i tried them anyway & to my surprise i loved it! the key to the maxi is finding the right material, design & look that fits your body type....maxi dresses are a big must have in the OC because not only are they SO comfortable to wear, but you can dress them down with flip flops for the beach & then dress it up at night with some wedges...gotta love versatile items!
TOMS are another must have for the summer in the OC...they're the perfect light weight shoe that you can wear anywhere.....they're comfortable & cute &perfect for a casual day on the boardwalk...plus they come in so many fun colors & designs....my favorite are the red ones..i love wearing them with a blue & white stripped top


jean shorts....do i need to say more? everyone no matter where you live should own a pair of jean shorts. they are SO versatile & the perfect go to item when running late because they literally go with everything...my favorite type are destroyed ones, they add more spice to the look!

another trend us OC girls like to do is loose tanks over our swim suits or if you dare a lacy bra....you will see girls in jean shorts, loose tanks over their suits everywhere in the OC....its literally our summer look

flip flops are a must have for everybody during the summer, however over here you will see a lot of us sporting Rainbow Sandals ......rainbows have been around since 1974 & located in the adorable Beach Town, San Clemente (my town)....one thing about rainbows that is different from most flip flops is they mold to your feet & literally last forever...not to mention they are so comfortable & don't give the sides of your feet blisters...


andddd lastly to finish off the OC summer must haves a pair of RayBans .....they're chic & cool and perfect for guys & girls...not to mention they come in a lot of fun colors...I'm a huge rayban lover, i have a few pairs...i love wearing my white ones during the summer

soooo there you have it, what most of our wardrobe consists of during the summer...& i know some of you are reading this & thinking that's not how The Real Housewives of Orange County would dress...well newsflash - they're not beach girls...I'm talking about the true OC beach girls who care more about getting a good spot on the sand then how their hair looks....

Nice post! I used to not like maxi dresses but now I'm dying to own one...I have my eye on a navy blue & white striped one! I think with a light brown belt and some gladiators it would look fab :)

I also own some Ray Bans but I prefer the aviators! My dad used to be a pilot and has worn them all my life so I totally copped his style, haha!
